Kentucky KM-1000 Artist F-Style Mandolin – Sunburst

$1,995 $1,299.99

The KM-1000 Kentucky® Master Model Mandolin was introduced in the late 1970s in response to players’ and collectors’ requests for a mandolin that duplicated the best vintage instruments in every point of tone, appearance and finish. Kentucky® Master Models are again being constructed to the same standard of quality. Only the finest American spruce and maple is hand-carved and graduated for the tops and backs.
Deluxe 14:1 reverse tuners, pre-war style ebony bridge and side-striped w/b/w ivoroid body binding all reek vintage. Take a trip back to the early 20s on the Kentucky® time machine…it is surprisingly affordable.
